In the study of religious moderation by the Ministry of Religious Affairs (Kemenag) in 2020, it was stated that the dimension of national commitment is one of the dimensions that should be developed in the field of education. In line with that, this research aims to produce a moderate framework of national identity, supported by a valid and reliable measurement construct of national commitment that fulfills model fit. The measurement construct of national commitment generated in this research is an implementation of the evolving understanding of national identity among integrated Islamic school educators. The discussion of national commitment, which is an implementation of the moderate national identity framework of Integrated Islamic Schools, is divided into two dimensions: the dimension of commitment to the state foundation and the dimension of commitment to national sovereignty. The dimension of commitment to the state consists of five indicators, while the dimension of commitment to national sovereignty consists of three indicators. The research subjects consisted of 149 individuals who were educators and educational personnel from Integrated Islamic Schools affiliated with the Integrated Islamic School Network (JSIT) in Indonesia. This research went through three stages, including an initial literature review, development stage, and presentation stage. The method used was quantitative research through field trials with measurement methods, and the analysis was conducted using the Lisrel 8.8 application through reflective construct based on confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). Based on the confirmatory factor analysis of the national commitment measurement, it was found to be valid, reliable, and had a good model fit. Each dimension and indicator were able to reflect and shape the construct of national commitment. Therefore, the measurement model of national commitment can be accepted based on the empirical data obtained from the field trials.

The moderate framework of national identity produced in this research represents an effort to create a new breakthrough in measuring attitudes and behaviors of moderation, accompanied by its quantitative measurement. The measurement instrument of national commitment is expected to be used by any institution, including formal, non-formal, and informal educational institutions. It can also be used as a tool for testing and measuring national commitment.
